I don't know much about cars, so I need a mechanic I can trust. When I've taken my car to other mechanics or oil change shops, they've tended to suggest lots of expensive extras, some of which I think I've been suckered into buying. North County Import is good at telling me maintenance which is coming up but isn't necessary. I take my car to them before any long trips and have had trouble- free vacations, even with an older model car.

They are now called: North County Import Specialist. Took my 1999 Nissan Maxima and they diagnosed the problem as a bad bearing. I then asked them to change the belts, oil and filter and they did so for only $99. Whole thing took less then five hours from estimate to driving away. I found the shop to be very clean and organized and wasn't pressured into other extraneous repairs. Will take the Nissan there again in the future and will probably do so with my Tacoma PU truck as well. Highly recommended.

I actually switched over and started using North County Import Specialists a few years ago. It has been so great that I refer other people to go there as well. I even have some people from LA county making the drive to use them. They are pretty awesome. Both the customer service and the work itself is better than previous mechanics I have been to, and the price is pretty on key. I have been ripped off at other mechanics, but Glen is great.
